Precarious crossing

I've arrived safely in Bella Coola; it's been an adventurous drive, including a side trip well off the beaten track, following garbled instructions down unmapped roads.

I gave this bit of road at Spences Bridge a miss, even though it's still on my maps. The sign on the highway said only, "Old bridge closed".

I've got oodles of photos and stories to tell, now that I have electricity and internet access for a few days; scenery, rocks (not flippable), animals tiny and big, etc. No bears, yet; I'm going to look for some tomorrow.


  1. you reminded me of Rock Flipping Day; which is how I found your blog many years ago, but now I've forgotten when it is: Did I miss it? I hope not!

    Love the "closed" bridge.Good thing you didn't attempt it.

  2. Sara,
    No, you didn't miss it; it's the 13th of September.

  3. Looking forward to your journey saga.

  4. That's hilarious story. We made our first stop there last Fri. night and saw that point....oh they used to be a bridge there!


If your comment is on a post older than a week, it will be held for moderation. Sorry about that, but spammers seem to love old posts!

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
